ERBC (ex CERB) has acquired RTC

The European Research Biology Center (ERBC) has acquired the Research Toxicology Center (RTC).

ERBC provides healthcare and chemical professionals a comprehensive range of experimental capabilities and services, from preclinical proof-of-concept to market of any type of drug candidate or chemical compound. Each project is managed by a study director, relying on a multi-disciplinary team of experts, notably in general pharmacology, cardiology, electrophysiology and pathophysiology, and also benefiting from a world-class academic and private network.

RTC is a fully fledged contract research laboratory located near Rome, Italy, with a track record spanning more than four decades. RTC collaborates with a large range of industrial clients including the pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, agro-chemical and biocide industries.

Oaklins' team in France advised the buyer in this transaction.

“With the help of Oaklins, we are thrilled to join forces and offer a critical mass of credible and efficient alternative to the big CROs. We are proud to be a unique European player in the field. Our partnerships with the pharma, other CROs and independent experts play a key role in driving improvements in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, delivering better data to regulators as well as improved value to study sponsors. Oaklins' team gave us fantastic support in a complex transaction.”
